Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

A Practical Buying Guide to Cutting through Blade Servers


Just uttering the term "blade server" creates confusion and spawns many questions. That’s because the term is applied to a wide range of hardware and software products that can vary greatly in terms of value, functionality, and fit in the enterprise. This is akin to using the term "automobile" to describe everything from a three-cylinder compact car to an eight-passenger SUV. In this buying guide, we’ll sort out the confusion and provide you with a practical checklist for evaluating current market offerings. There is a place for blade servers in your enterprise, but not every enterprise needs every offering available.

Sorting Through the ERP, Lean MFG, APS, and MES Clutter - Part 3


Part 1 of this blog series started with a discussion of the fact that the ability to sense demand and become a demand-driven (responsive) business is more than just the catch phrase du jour: it has become a recipe for survival. For the past few decades, the providers of a multiplicity of by-and-large integrated manufacturing software solutions have been offering help for embattled manufacturers

car assembly flowchart  For example, a typical car assembly line consists of the correct components being supplied to work stations on a moving assembly line at the correct rate. The problem is that if the plant makes for large batches, the storage space next to the assembly lines will become overloaded. On the other hand, if the plant makes too small batches, the changeover time for the machines that are feeding parts will be too high and the final assembly line will run out of parts. In other words, if one tried to produce Read More

Kawasaki Plant Switches to Electronic Kanban System Using LANSA's Technology


There was a new LANSA case study released yesterday that really grabbed my attention.

As a result, a team of developers was able to create and install an eKanban system on the first assembly line in two months using the vendor's new development tool. The new eKanban system leverages mobile technology and the newest available devices so the shop floor workers can now manage Read More

Further Analysis: Saturno-TP's Selection of QAD ERP


I am quite familiar with the Russian auto industry, and thus I enjoyed analyzing the transaction that recently took place involving a big player in the automobile industry in Russian manufacturing hub Togliatti, whereby automotive industry supplier, Russia-based Saturno-TP, became a client of ERP software vendor QAD (also see yesterday's TEC blog post). Despite global industry depression, the

3 Microsoft Shop Myths Dispelled?


Here’s the context: You’re selecting an ERP system. Your office is standardized on Windows and MS Office Suite. Should you select MS Dynamics and become a full-fledged “MS shop”?
